input formats:
  • HTML:
    • Each email address will be obfuscated in a human readable fashion or (if JavaScript is enabled) replaced with a spamproof clickable link.
    • Web page addresses and e-mail addresses turn into links automatically.
    • Allowed HTML tags: <img> <video> <a> <em> <strong> <cite> <code> <ul> <ol> <li> <dl> <dt> <dd> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <pre> <strike>

      This site allows HTML content. While learning all of HTML may feel intimidating, learning how to use a very small number of the most basic HTML "tags" is very easy. This table provides examples for each tag that is enabled on this site.

      For more information see W3C's HTML Specifications or use your favorite search engine to find other sites that explain HTML.

      Most unusual characters can be directly entered without any problems.

      If you do encounter problems, try using HTML character entities. A common example looks like &amp; for an ampersand & character. For a full list of entities see HTML's entities page. Some of the available characters include:

    • Lines and paragraphs are automatically recognized. The <br /> line break, <p> paragraph and </p> close paragraph tags are inserted automatically. If paragraphs are not recognized simply add a couple blank lines.
    • References to project issues in the form of [#1234] (or [#1234-2] for comments) turn into links automatically, with the title of the issue appended. The status of the issue is shown on hover. If '@' is appended (e.g. [#1234@]), the user the issue is assigned to will also be printed.
  • Wiki:
    • You can use Mediawiki syntax. It is possible that not all formatting options are supported at the moment.

      You can link to internal content by using the title of a node. Use [[Node Title]] to link to the node with the corrseponding name. An alternate title can be specified like this: [[Node Title|Link title]]

      External links are detected automatically. So just type for the link. If you want a different title, use the following syntax: [ some link title].

      You can use interwiki links. Type [[site:Page Title]] to link to a page on a different site. You can use the following interwiki links:

      • path: Local drupal path - mapped to /en/%s
      • gdo: - mapped to
      • wp: Wikipedia - mapped to

      Images are included with [[Image:filename]]. You can link to uploaded image nodes with [[Image:node title]].
      Special image formatting can be done via [[Image:name|alignment|size|caption]] where any of additional information is optional. alignment is one of left, center or right. Size is in the format 80px or 80x70px. The caption is arbitrary text. See the wikipedia help for the full syntax, but be aware that frames and description text is not supported.
